Mobile phone users waste £4.8 billion a year

We take our mobile phones for granted; having the ability to talk to anyone at anytime anywhere we feel like is the norm.  However according to national mathematical group Billmonitor, 75% of mobile users are overpaying around £200 a year, because their contracts do not provide them with the right amount of services they need.

The researchers claim that these ‘misjudged’ contracts cost UK mobile phone users an astonishing £4.8 billion a year. The study noted that over half of people are on a tariff that is too large, typically using just a quarter of their monthly allowance. It also found that a third of customers currently on the wrong tariff are on too small a tariff, paying inflated charges for use over their allowance.

So how can users ensure they get the deal that is right for their usage? Under-users and over-payers can opt for a pay-as-you-go style contract where they pay for exactly what they use. This typically is an unattractive offering as the monthly cost is not as consistent as a bundled contract, while the calls, texts and data will be slightly higher.

However there is another way.
